A Novel Instrument
The Sitarbass combines the curved frets of a sitar with the body and sound of an electric bass.
The curved frets allow for notes to be bent with control and expression.
Sitarbass Highlife Session
The Sitarbass Highlife Session features the sitarbass on classic Ghanaian highlife tracks. See all five videos on the sitarbass youtube channel.
The sitarbass has a slightly hollowed neck and is made from red cedar. Rail-type, 5 string Bartolini P/J pickups ensure consistent coverage while bending each of the four strings. The two coils of the p-bass style pickup are angled to match the curve of the frets.
